Let’s be honest—washing clothes and laundry day are two things we don’t always look forward to. While getting rid of a messy pile of clothes can bring a relief like no other, the whole process of scrubbing, rinsing, and hanging them out to dry can really be tiring.

Many homeowners opt to spruce up the laundry area into a charming space to make the task a bit bearable and there are those who liven it up with a few accessories. If you only have a small space to work with, we found a few pegs on Pinterest that may just inspire you to revamp your laundry nook. With a beautiful laundry space at home, this chore won’t be a bore:

If your current laundry area works, look into storage ideas that can help keep it clutter-free. An organizer that can be easily installed on the door can be used to hold detergents, towels, and other essentials. Divide the organizer and assign a tier to the must-haves you use when washing clothes. Make sure you regularly clean and organize this part of your laundry area to make working a breeze.

Those who are fans of the classic, vintage style can have a cabinet customized to serve as storage center. Multiple drawers and levels can keep your essentials within reach while avoiding clutter. When organizing your cabinet, put the baskets on top and the ones you use often at eye level. You can even have your trusted carpenter create a cabinet with pull-out drawers—that will be chic!

You don't have to settle for plain-looking cabinets and shelves. If you have budget to spare, challenge yourself with a little DIY project. You can paint your laundry nook in a color you prefer—a cheerful shade can instantly liven it up—or work with tiles to spruce up the walls.
